College football is just a game

The Citadel has already cancelled its game against Charleston Southern, originally scheduled for Saturday. FSU vs. Miami - made for TV on Labor Day - is looking iffy too.

Why? The name's Frances, and as nifty the picture below looks, Frances will be as ugly as can be when she hits the southeast coast. Let's give thanks for science, and the ability to give fair warning.

Personal footnote: On our tarpon trip this summer, we stayed in a charming old village that took a full frontal assault from Hugo in 1989. While there, we had nice conversations with the neighbors and a local historian. They told us that in the aftermath of Hugo, dead seagulls were found in the 2nd story, and dolphins in the living room, of the lovely house we'd made our own for a week. Can you imagine that? These storms have no mercy.
